Oral Histories

Our oral historians have been busy chatting to Halton people.

The recordings capture these memories and experiences of work in the borough – their own and those of their parents and grandparents. They cover over 100 years of Halton history and explore occupations as diverse as chemical industry worker, bargee and shopkeeper.

You can browse through the oral histories below and listen to short clips and the full recordings, or search them by occupation or date.
